NOTE: for the 2021 season, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are limiting the number of volunteers in the Snack Shack to 3, and no one under 16 is allowed to be in the Shack. Also know that all volunteers are to wear masks and follow all CDC guidelines in the Shack.
The main objective of the Pocket Little League Snack Shack is to give players an opportunity to be rewarded with a meal, drink or treat regardless of the outcome of their baseball game. This way everyone can go home a winner. It is also a club fundraiser — but prices are kept low to try to keep it affordable for even the littlest players.
Anyone 16 or older can work a shift and satisfy family commitment hours. There can only be two (2) persons under the age of 18 at any time and at least two (2) persons age 18 or older at all times. This includes parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, siblings or friends. This is also a great way for teenagers to get community service hours for clubs and college applications!
For safety reasons: No children younger than 16 can be inside the shack at any time.
One volunteer will cook hot dogs and hamburgers on the barbecue outside while remaining volunteers will work in the shack serving drinks, snacks, and treats. Volunteers will also make change, restock items and cleanup at the end of day, including emptying snack shack trash cans into the dumpster. Ensure that the dumpster is locked upon completion.
The snack shack at Conlin will need 4 volunteers per shift at a minimum. Saturday events may need 5 volunteers per shift. Please arrive on time for your shift. Volunteers will be given a brief lesson on their job responsibilities. The shack usually closes a few minutes after the last game ends. Games can end earlier or run longer than expected so shift end time is an estimate
To sign up for a snack shack shift during the season, please visit our page on the SignUpGenius website. Here you can reserve an open shift, or a shift assigned to your team during one of your scheduled games. Please do not sign up for another team’s shift unless it is less than 24 hours before the shift and it still has not been filled. Contact your Team Parent to report your volunteer hours and to answer any questions you may have about the snack shack.
